Electronic Impulses: The Videos of Peter Callas

by Ross Harley

Art + Text, Aug. Summer 1988, pp. 4-6

The article cites the formal complexity of Peter Callas' videography as a testimony to the impossibility of a single, reducible "essence" to video as a format and art medium. The interplay of video-clips, video-effects, and time/action manipulation all contribute to the formation of a "dense and highly refined video-symphony."
